BIOASTER and FUJIFILM Corporation for a collaborative study

BIOASTER, Microbiology Technology Institute, announced that it has confirmed and started a collaboration for the study of an Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) rapid diagnostic system with FUJIFILM Corporation.


In order to prevent a future outbreak of the disease, it is important to easily diagnose EVD patients at early stage and implement initial response measures to break the chain of infection. To that end, there is an urgent need to develop new technologies and products for rapid and reliable diagnosis tools to be used at the patients’ bedside. This joint study aims at establishing a simple, rapid, small-size and portable diagnostic system, with high diagnostic capabilities, comparable to molecular testing.
